This painting was done from photos I took on a misty, foggy day on the beach walking distance from my studio. The mood – especially the light coming from the partially obscured sun just out of view – recalled my experiences as a Hospice volunteer. Being present at the passing of several people from this life has affected me in a very deep and ironically uplifting way. The bubbles with flames in their centers represent the souls of the departed floating peacefully out to sea. Released of all struggle and fear and limitation. This is the way I imagine death to be for the one passing on: a beautiful and liberating step into a broader awareness. Like exiting a stuffy, smoky room. Or removing a too tight pair of shoes.


Paul Bond’s award-winning oil paintings live in the spaces between dreaming and reality.

Born in 1964 in Guadalajara, Mexico, he draws from the Latin American genre of Magic Realism where symbolic and fantastic elements blend with realistic atmospheres, unveiling a world where anything is possible. His paintings merge symbolic, surreal and fantastic elements with realistic atmospheres to unveil a world where everything is possible. He often refers to then as “fairy tales for adults”. By merging and altering familiar objects –mixed with equal parts whimsy, wonder and mysticism – Bond’s works delight the imagination and stir the soul.

Bond’s award-winning art has been featured in galleries and museums, including the Gateway Museum in Farmington, NM and the San Diego Art Institute. His paintings are now in private collections throughout the US and worldwide. Corporate collections include Fox, Warner Bros and NBC Studios, Royal Caribbean International, Scripps Hospital, Marriott Hotels, Hotel EMC2, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.
